 British Sea Anemones

Sea Anemones fight over territory. The red Beadlet Anemone, Actinia equina uses its acrorhagi (blue beads) and the green Snakelocks Anemone, Anemonia viridis uses its long tentacles.

British Sea Anemones

British Anthozoa

Up until now there has not been a colour photographic guide to these most attractive animals in British seas. The standard literature was British Anthozoa by R L Manuel  (Academic Press: Synopsis of British Fauna series) ISBN 0.12.470050.0 This is the 1981 edition. I think a later edition was produced. It contains the accurate line drawings.

The Biomar CD-ROM rectifies this shortfall, and the section on the sea anemones is reason enough for acquiring this CD-ROM. 
(I found the sea anemones the prompt that got me interested in marine life around Britain: a compulsion at the time.)

Almost all the sea anemones found around the British Isles are illustrated by superb photographs and a brief explanation about the anemones and other anthozoans. These include rare and uncommon species that I have never seen in the wild or even in photographs before.
